Raw Veggie Collard Wraps

  2 rater(s)

If you’re lucky enough to live in a city with a raw vegan restaurant, it’s nice to treat yourself to a meal to avoid prepping a meal. These establishments can offer many different types of dishes, many of which may seem difficult to make. In reality, a lot of these dishes are not complex and you can make them as long as you have a good blender or food processor.

In the case of a raw vegan wrap, you can include many different ingredients to make up the filling. You can go the simple route, cut up different vegetables, and roll them up. There’s nothing wrong with this, but sometimes it’s more flavorful to add a creamy spread. The spread acts as both a filling and a sauce, and creates a pleasant mouthfeel when you bit into the wrap. It’s all about the combination of textures! You need something that’s creamy and delectable to complement the crunch of the raw vegetables.

That’s where the salt and pepper cashew spread comes into play. It’s very simple to make, but we recommend soaking the raw cashews for at least four hours prior to blending. This will create a much smoother, creamier consistency. And as far as the veggies go, you are free to choose whichever ones you enjoy. It’s best to cut all of them the exact same way for easy eating. The ones we listed are completely optional and we encourage you to choose ones that entice your palate. Just make sure that they’re all raw!
